Sinful Vow (Dark Mafia Sins, book 1) by Emily Bowie – Review by Michelle Austin

Sinful Vow (Dark Mafia Sins, #0.5)Sinful Vow by Emily Bowie
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved it and couldn’t put it down. This author is quickly becoming one of my favorites to read.
I was drawn in right from the beginning. Love this series.

We get dual POV, I really loved these two. We get a little back story and start when they are younger and go through the years. At one point Aly meets Luca, her silence earns his protection even though he is the enemy. Then when Aly is 21 things take a pretty big twist and she finds herself in a position she never thought she would be in. Luca has a plan and that includes Aly, will he be successful?

I was on the edge of my seat the whole time. I couldn’t get through the book fast enough to see what was coming next. The secondary characters added a great element to the story. If you’re looking for a great mafia series, I highly suggest this one. 1-click and get started today. I look forward to reading more from this author.

Wild Hare's DaughterWild Hare’s Daughter by Laura Koerber
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This isn’t a genre I read often but once I started I was pulled right in. This was a great suspenseful 5 star read. This is a fast paced read about Amy who decides to search for her father to get some answers and hopefully have a relationship with him. I was on the edge of my seat waiting to see what was coming next and to see if she would succeed. There are so many things going on, the author does a great job with her writing. All of the characters added a great element to the story. I also enjoyed the story because I live in Wisconsin not far from where this story was set. Just made it a little extra special. You can read this book as a stand alone but you may want to read book one first so you get the back story. I look forward to reading more from this author. 1-click and get started today.

Imperfectly Yours (Titans of Manhattan Book 2) by Anise Storm – Review by Michelle Austin

Imperfectly Yours (Titans of Manhattan #2)Imperfectly Yours by Anise Storm
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was an emotional 5 star read. Once I started I couldn’t put it down, I read it in one sitting. It was over way too fast for me. We get another Titans’s story, Anton and Elsa’s.

Anton is a heartthrob actor and Elsa is a real estate agent in NYC. They meet when Elsa shows Anton some homes. He eventually asks her out and it’s a whirlwind courtship and marriage. Everything seems so perfect for them but of course life adds some twists that really tested their love and personal strength.

Can these two make it through the storms and get their HEA?

My emotions were all over the place reading this story, I had some ugly crying going on. I loved both characters so much, their love was true and I had so much faith in them. The secondary characters were great as well, love seeing the other Titans. This can be read as a stand alone but suggest reading book 1 first so you can meet the first couple. I can’t wait to read the next Titan story. 1-click and get started today.
